October 6th, 7th and 8th Steinbeisser and Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy celebrate 5 years of Experimental Gastronomy bringing together international artists and chefs from Berlin, Copenhagen and New York. Join us for a weekend of profound cuisine and design at the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy.
Every evening is a unique immersive experience that marries high end gastronomy with conceptual design practices and offers a radically different way to enjoy food.
VEGAN COMPOSITIONS BY CELEBRATED CHEFS
On three consecutive evenings of October 6th, 7th and 8th three acclaimed chefs: Kristian Baumann (head chef at Noma’s one Michelin star 108), Daniel Burns (head chef and partner at Tørst and Luksus (one Michelin star)), and Andreas Rieger (head chef at one Michelin star einsunternull (the new rising star of the Berlin culinary scene)) will each serve a special tasting menu for this plant-based dining experience. For this occasion, the chefs are taking up a challenge of using exclusively plant-based (vegan) ingredients sourced from organic and biodynamic producers found in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
EXPLORATION OF THE TERROIR AND NEW ARTISANSHIP BY SOMMELIER THÉO CAUCHOIS
Tasked with the same challenge as the chefs, Théo Cauchois (sommelier, art historian and anthropologist) will explore artisan makers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany who craft natural, vegan, biodynamic and organic beers, ciders and wines. Highlighting each terroir and the new artisanship he will, at the same time, consider global issues of sustainability.
CUTLERY AND TABLEWARE - THE TOOLS TO BEWILDER AND ENCHANT
Twenty-five artists will muse on the various aspects of food cultures, creating cutlery and tableware that disrupt the conventions and enrich the dining experience in most unexpected ways. Unique pieces made of concrete, glass, rice, salt and silver turn it into a profoundly conscious and even performative act. The cutlery is made by Marie Eklund, Elin Flognman, Sophie Hanagarth, Joo Hyung Park, Laia Ribas Valls and Tala Yuan. The bowls, plates and vessels will be crafted by Dovile Bernadisiute, Catalina Brenes, Gabriela Cohn, Katharina Dettar, Tatjana Giorgadse, Helen Habtay, Nils Hint, Caroline Hultqvist, Inari Kiuru, Machteld Lambeets, Judith Lasry, Christina Liu, Xiao Liu, Hugo Madureira, Mia Maljojoki, Felicia Mülbaier, Julia Obermaier, Toño Perez and Kathleen Reilly.
